Azerbaijan Air Force Fighter Aviation: Prospects and Development Trends

106
Fighter aviation for any state in the modern world is a priority in terms of military power and dominance in the sky. Azerbaijan is one of the leaders in this direction in the Transcaucasian region. Azerbaijan's fighter aviation fleet consists of 16 units of the MiG-29S and MiG-29UB fighters, as well as 5-10 units of partially modernized Soviet-made MiG-25P and MiG-25PD fighter interceptors.



Fighter MiG-29 Air Force of Azerbaijan

It is impossible to call fighter aircraft of Azerbaijan meeting modern standards. The MiG-29 fighters, once purchased in Ukraine by Azerbaijan, have not yet been modernized to increase their combat capabilities. Thus, Azerbaijani MiG-29 fighters remain at the level of 4 generation fighters, while developed countries replenish the fleet with 4 + and 4 ++ generation fighters and only some countries (such as the USA, Russia, China, Israel, South Korea , India and Japan) are beginning to replenish their fleet of air force fighter jets 5-th generation.

For Azerbaijan, in choosing and purchasing new fighters, it is necessary to take into account many factors, one of which is that the potential enemy has a sufficiently strengthened air defense system. Another equally important factor is that not every country is ready to deliver fighter jets to Azerbaijan, citing the fact that we have an unresolved territorial military conflict. An example of such a refusal in the supply of fighters could be the fact that Azerbaijan in the 2013 year showed interest in the Swedish fighters Saab JAS 39 Gripen, but the negotiation process did not produce results due to the refusal of supplies due to the existing territorial conflict. Another similar example could also be Russia's refusal to supply Azerbaijan with MiG-35 fighters of the 4 ++ generation. Azerbaijan also wanted to buy them, but was rejected by Russia, the reason for which was either Moscow’s alliance with Yerevan, or the fear that Azerbaijan’s air force would be more powerful in the South Caucasus than the Russian air force stationed in Armenia.

However, Azerbaijan did not stop in searching for opportunities to purchase new fighters. The Sino-Pakistani fighter JF-17 Thunder became one of the interested Azerbaijani military. Talks and rumors about the plans for the purchase of these fighters by Azerbaijan have been going on for a long time.
Some sources and the media even called the number in 24 units, allegedly just as many of the JF-17 Thunder fighter jets ordered Azerbaijan. But so far, none of the official sources have confirmed the purchase of JF-17 Thunder fighter jets by Azerbaijan. Moreover, it is possible that Azerbaijan completely refused to purchase these fighters due to the fact that the JF-17 Thunder fighter jets in their tactical and technical parameters are not much different from the MiG-29 fighters of the Azerbaijani Air Force. Thus, the meaning of the purchase of these fighters completely disappears. Directly speaking, the JF-17 Thunder fighter is in fact an 4 generation fighter, no different from other fighters of the same generation, and so far completely raw, while Azerbaijan needs to strive to purchase 4 + or 4 ++ fighter jets .

If we talk about the fighter generation 4 + and 4 ++, they are presented in the following models: Russian MiG-35, European Eurofighter Typhoon, French Dassault Rafale Standart F2, American F-16IN NG and Chinese Chengdu J-39B. Among all these countries, the manufacturers of the 10 + and 4 ++ generation fighters, only one country can become a potential supplier of fighters to Azerbaijan - China. China has made tremendous efforts to build and produce military equipment, and the Chinese weapon It has long been competing with arms manufacturers from Russia, the United States and some EU countries. Separately, it should be noted that in terms of production of fighters, China has advanced far enough, and now half of the fleet of fighter aircraft of China are fighters of their own production.

However, in military-technical terms, Azerbaijan has little to do with China, and to be precise, it is not at all connected. Azerbaijan purchased a Turkish-made 21 long-range MRLS "T-300 Kasirga", which are the license equivalent of the Chinese WS-1B MRLS. And in order to fill this gap, the Azerbaijani military and officials of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan can think about establishing a military-technical connection with China. You can start just with the purchase of fighters, namely the fighter Chengdu J-10B.

Azerbaijan Air Force Fighter Aviation: Prospects and Development Trends

Multi-purpose all-weather fighter PLA Air Force Chengdu J-10B

The Chinese fighter Chengdu J-10B is an upgraded version of the base version of Chengdu J-10А. Chengdu J-10B fighters are equipped with Russian AL-31FN engines, which in the future can be replaced by Chinese WS-10A. The upgraded J-10B differs from the basic version of the J-10A radar with a phased antenna array, supersonic air intakes of a modified design, a new infrared search and tracking system, metallized spraying on the cockpit canopy to reduce radar visibility and a new electronic warfare system. Experts in the field of fighter aircraft refer Chengdu J-10B to the 4 ++ generation and note that the Chinese fighter Chengdu J-10B surpasses even some of its foreign competitors.

The purchase of Chengdu J-10B fighters by Azerbaijan will not only increase the military power of Azerbaijan in the sky, but will also give a tremendous impetus to the development of military-technical ties with China. In the future, Azerbaijan may purchase military equipment in China for other types of troops. And, if it adds even more effort to this process, Azerbaijani-Chinese relations will be developed, new opportunities will open, including obtaining a license to manufacture Chinese military equipment in Azerbaijan.

                The biggest problem is the suppression of Armenia’s air defense within borders and politics. Azerbaijan’s air forces can easily suppress all NKR air defense (portable MANPADS naturally do not count). Well, the Armenians are not stupid either .... not stupid at all. In case of serious air defense losses, they can to transfer the remains to the territory of Armenia proper, on which Azerbaijan cannot beat. Obstacle - CSTO. A direct blow to anything on the territory of Armenia will be the actual declaration of the CSTO (and the actual collapse of the CSTO, because Kazakhstan and Belarus will certainly refuse to declare war, contrary to the agreement) ...

                    And yet, the factor of the CSTO (read Russia) and the 102nd base of the Russian Federation has the most powerful effect of braking the Azerbaijani Armed Forces according to the plans to strike against Armenia from "mainland Azerbaijan" and Nakhchivan. By agreement with Russia (the policy is two-faced), we can recapture the territories to Goychay (Sevan ) and the region of Kapan and Syunik. But we will be careful not to bring the 102 base from Gyumri outside Armenia to the territory east of Gyumri, Spitak, Vanadzor, Hrazdan, Yerevan.

Serge is speaking that Aliyev almost crawled at the feet of Putin and Shoigu, just that Armenia would stop its "offensive" ... In Baku they say the opposite ... and to be honest ... from the point of view of sound logic (and not an Azeri), I think the second option is more plausible ... but what do you think ... what is the attitude in Armenia itself about this? you know more than me what is going on "on the other side of the barricades" in relation to me drinks

                    Russian fighters will be based there in Armenia, and if Azerbaijan attacks Armenia, do you really think that our troops will remain on the sidelines?
                    Remember South Ossetia, the country is not a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, but Russia intervened (suppressed Georgian air defense, destroyed several ships during the naval battle, as well as almost all boats in the port of Poti, in addition, Tochka-U missiles launched at Georgian military facilities), here the more it intervenes.

                As for the Azerbaijani Air Force ... I am categorically against (my opinion would have mattered lol ) purchases of Western aviation by our Air Force. Firstly, it is expensive, there is no real superiority of performance characteristics over Russian or Chinese (imagine) counterparts, a long-distance and very unreliable material base (it makes no sense to buy tons of "spare parts" due to their obsolescence for 7-10 years (mainly concerns electronics, radars, etc.)).

                I really want to see in the Azerbaijani Air Force: SU-35 (not a lot, 8 pieces). Su-30 in the SM version), bring the number of Su-25 to 24 units. (UB does not count) and the SM3 version, the fabulous Su-34 (if possible, in the new M-package wink ) Yak-130 ... and replace our already slightly older IL-76 with the variant IL-76MD-90A.

                As for the dragonfly park smile ...
                Ka-52 .. here without options:
                , Mi-17-B5 in style for India:

                Mi-24 Super Hind Mk.4 (Mk.5 South Africa for a couple with the Ukrainians mutilated) Mi-35M, and a couple of Mi-26T2.

      You can start with the purchase of fighters,

      - Armenia, in view of their not very steep economy (compared to Baku), can only ask Russia for the S-300. And in this case, not only China, but also the USA will not help Azerbaijan. Asymmetry, however ...

      Azerbaijan has long wanted to renew its air force. Yes, the economic crisis erupted inappropriately. But sellers still periodically declare themselves. Judging by interviews and publications, there were contacts with Pakistan (JF-17 Block 3 improved version) and Russia (Su-30). By and large, the choice is small. Western countries do not sell, and they have very expensive, the same Typhoons and Rafali, at the expense of the Swedes and Chinese have not been heard before. And by and large, modern aviation is not so important to us now. Karabakh is not so hot such a large territory. MLRS and long-range artillery with high-precision shells will take on most of the tasks. A pair of EW aircraft would not hurt to blind air defense radars.

      They are probably interested. They just won’t be able to buy - a heavy fighter with the latest avionics they obviously can not afford

      "F-15 silent eagle with low radio signature. Amazing machine ..." ///

      Only very expensive. For 120 million pieces. And the radio visibility, although lowered, but many, many times higher than that of the Raptor and Lightning.

      There will be a lot of used F-16s on the market soon. As they gradually, in different countries, begin to replace the F-35.
      F-16, however, require very careful maintenance.

      No wonder, this F-15 silent eagle was made in one single copy and so far no country has decided to buy it, F-35 is suitable for rich countries, for them the F-15SE is already outdated morally and technically, and for the poor F-15SE countries are too expensive, they are more likely to buy the F-16V or the latest version of the Flu.

      Iran was interested in buying Su-30SM from Russia, but the UN Security Council resolution prohibits the supply of offensive weapons to Iran, so for now we are supplying 5 S-300 divisions.

      Recently, the authorities and the opposition in Armenia came to an agreement on the upcoming parliamentary elections, for their accurate holding 15-16 million dollars are needed, now they beg from everyone, stating that there is no such money in Armenia. And you say that the sale of several dozen MIL- 35 will force Armenia to fork out and buy something in order to neutralize Azerbaijani purchases, which I strongly doubt, because in order to fork out, the country needs to have this wallet. Armenia, to my regret, is a bankrupt country, which after so many years of outright robbery of the country from the side of the so-called Armenian "elites" it is not surprising. Now Armenia is in a deplorable state and in the place of the Azerbaijanis I would buy bomber aircraft with good smart guided bombs and missiles to sweep away the air defense of Armenia.

        With the growing danger of conflict, Russia can transfer S-400 and Su-30SM / 34 / 35C there, and maybe Iskander. The CSTO is a matter of principle, if Russia cannot defend an ally, then this military bloc is worthless.

      Azerbaijan needs fighters either for Pontus, or against Russia or Iran; against Armenia, they were better off buying bombers with smart long-range air-to-ground missiles. And as for the air defense, first of all Azerbaijan will start fighting in Karabakh and the united air defense will not give Armenia anything in this regard, the Russians, as always, calmly point out that Karabakh is not part of Armenia and they will not defend it. hi .

          And who says that you are not doing the right thing, exactly the same situation developed in April of this year, when Russia not only did not intervene in the conflict, but also added fuel to the fire. For example, Rogozin is not the last person in the leadership of Russia in the "hot" days of the April battles in Karabakh, in response to requests from the Armenian leadership to restrict the export of Russian weapons to Azerbaijan, he wrote on his Twitter very cynically:
          "We have sold and we will sell".
          I am not at all surprised by this approach of the Russian leadership to the leadership of Armenia - no one in the world does not stand on ceremony with the sixes. And after all this, the "authorities" of Armenia will ratify the agreement on common air defense with Russia in parliament, as if there were no recent battles in Karabakh and Russia did not show her attitude towards Armenia. This signed treaty on the unified air defense system is exactly the same fiction as the CSTO treaty.

              Of course, only Russia's efforts to "contain" bully Azerbaijan saves Karabakh from Azerbaijani sweeps, good efforts, nothing to say, even in the days of the April battles in Karabakh, Russia continued to supply weapons to Azerbaijan. After the battles ended, Azerbaijan had claims to Russia about the equipment it delivered to Azerbaijan, so the Russians urgently sent to Baku instructors for deeper education of Azerbaijanis.
              Well, of course, Armenia did not support Russia on key issues. These are just your unfounded accusations. And I will give a specific example - 2014, a UN vote on Crimea’s affiliation. Armenia supported Russia and was among the 11 countries that did this. - Where was your favorite ally of Lukashenko and Nazarbayev?
              And finally, the CSTO treaty - it does not protect Armenia and the Russian base in Gyumri stands to protect the "authorities" of Armenia who sold Armenia with giblets. This base does not play any protective function. Last year, on the border of Armenia with Azerbaijan, real battles broke out with the use of heavy technology, I emphasize, not in Karabakh, but on the border of Armenia with Azerbaijan, and I emphasize that there was not even a single condemnation of Azerbaijan's actions from the CSTO, let alone assistance.

                  It turns out that you are aware that Belarus voted in support of Russia on the Crimea issue, you are better informed than I, so what the hell do you write that Armenia did not support Russia in a number of issues. In one of the most important issues, it supported Russia, but you still sing here, that in a number of questions, no.
                  As for the Russian base, I agree with you that it was not for the sake of Serge Sargsyan that you installed this base, but the circumstances were such that any next president of Armenia could raise the question of the advisability of staying 102 bases in Armenia before Russia.

                        It is possible to come to an agreement with Turkey ... with Azerbaijan it is much more difficult. If it is to come to an agreement, it will start a “movement” when half of the NKR will be under the control of Azerbaijan, and such an “agreement” will only be possible if Russia withdraws the base from Armenia and abandons Armenia as vassal (as you say) ... Azerbaijan, having taken control of the second half of Garabakh, will not stand on the border with Armenia."The battery on the phone has run out ... I can't hear you well".... - in short, there will be no "negotiation" and the army will move further towards Ararat.

                        I always said ... Garabagh did not and will not bring the Armenians anything but trouble and death. Having captured Garabagh, you lost Armenia ...

                I do not pretend to be accurate. There is simply such a beast as geography and chronology. The base in Armenia was BEFORE the conflict. It stood and stands against Turkey. We are not talking about any involvement in the Karabakh conflict.

                There was such a version. The base in Armenia stands just to control Serzhik. This is exaggerated. In general, it has a great influence on the generals and political leadership of Armenia. And if you slightly shift the emphasis? When establishing relations with Turkey, Russia may raise the question of the appropriateness of 102 bases in Armenia. Huh?

We must look a little further. The slightest chance of capturing Armenia without the threat of an attack by the Russian Federation ...

                How do you find a common language? There is only one condition - the return of Karabakh to the full control of Baku without any autonomy, etc. Even if we assume that they will give autonomy, then in a few years it was also canceled by the de facto. Are you ready for such concessions?
                After the bases in Syria, 102 in essence is not needed, since it can be deprived of supplies at any time.

        Well, there was help. Even on the part of GLONASS and AES intelligence. Plus diplomatic efforts, plus "personal" ultimatums, so the so-called "reconnaissance in force" did not work for Azerbaijan. Although, admit, the losses of armored vehicles in the early stages of the militia of Nagorno-Karabakh and the army of Armenia were large.

This signed agreement on a joint air defense system is exactly the same fiction as the CSTO treaty.

    I have already told you that I heard from my Azeri acquaintances: "Russians interfere, etc." For example, yesterday at the market (you can laugh) I spoke with a Baku resident. Allegedly a major artelerist. He asserted that the Armenians as warriors are complete ... One Azerbaijani career soldier, etc. He said: "Every soldier knows that Karabakh has not yet been rolled out due to Moscow's interference. The Armenians have you as they want, and you protect them, etc."

          Any enemy is "tough". How did you come to this conclusion is unclear. War is "not our method." The question moved from the realm of hysteria into the mainstream of normal discussions. And here Azerbaijan has a clear advantage. We have an advantage in all resolutions, international law, logic and the general situation in the region. You just need to correctly implement it.

          Why do we fight? I will give one example, and then let those who are capable of it think. About a month and a half ago I was corrected in the population. I agreed not to escalate the situation. Boring but have to think a little. Wikipedia and my opponents here assure me that the population of Nagorno-Karabakh is 150. I am sure that it is less than 000. I can explain. The population of Armenia over the past 100 years has decreased from 000 million to 25 million. Plus or minus a tram stop. That is 3,5%. During this same time, as I am convinced, the population of Nagorno-Karabakh increased from 3 to 15. That is, it increased by 120%. I will never believe that life in Nagorno-Karabakh is two times better than in Armenia. There is a lot of literature of Armenian demographers that the figures are fake. I can provide links, but it will take a lot of time. Google the Internet and everything will become clear.

          Now tell me, why do we need 4th, 5th and nth generation fighters? They will die out. I repeated a hundred times: Armenia won the war and lost the world. This is the basis of geopolitics. You can’t live in conditions of war. They live in peace. And Armenia can get peace on quite certain conditions.

          Answering your question. Answer from Azeri: we do not need to win the war against Armenia. We need to win peace for Azerbaijan. It's as simple as two fingers on the asphalt. You just need to think intelligently.

            And do not hope. Armenians have been living in their land for millennia. And they will live forever while this ball is spinning. And Armenia did not have such enemies. And instead of counting the population of Armenia and the NKR, it’s better to think about why in Moscow, where you don’t spit, you’ll definitely get into az-nza. With such petrodollars, you would live like in Kuwait, and you will run to Moscow.

    And as for the air defense, so Azerbaijan will begin to fight in Karabakh first and the united air defense will not give Armenia anything in this regard, the Russians, as always, will calmly point out that Karabakh is not a part of Armenia and they will not defend it

    Long-range air defense systems can cover Nagorno-Karabakh with an "umbrella", and A-50U AWACS planes or the A-100 that appeared by that time will direct missiles at targets, South Ossetia is also an unrecognized republic, but Russia intervened.

    By the way, an interesting moment with MiGs. It turns out again, as with Iran. Those countries for which flight range is not a determining factor are denied supplies for political reasons. Let me remind you that Yeltsin cut down on the supply of MiG-29s to Iran, so that the United States would like it once again. Well, then the arguments about the "progressiveness" of Su and the wretchedness of MiGs begin, because as if no one wants to buy MiGs.

    The article is just a retelling of Internet posts. Well, we read about various fighters. The article is called "the prospects of Azerbaijan's fighter aviation". As noted here, Armenia has practically no aviation. Who will the 4 ++ or even the 5th generation fighters fight with? Or is Azerbaijan's wallet bottomless?

    There are a couple of dozen fighters and that's enough. Almost every year, pilots participate in joint exercises with the Turkish Air Force. That is, they have a good practice.

    An interesting indicator such as cost-effectiveness matters. In this scenario, the cost will be huge, and the efficiency is minimal due to the absence of the enemy. Or, for the sake of interest, to check how the S-300 acts against 4 ++ or even 5 fighters?

    My opinion is that the state armed forces should be balanced and built in accordance with military doctrine. According to our military doctrine, Azerbaijan has no obvious opponents except Armenia. And against it, there are enough available fighters. But the state needs the Air Force. That is the whole reason why procurement negotiations are not very active. Due to the global crisis, show Azerbaijan initiative and there will be sellers. And forget about any restrictions. But so far there is no interest on the part of the buyer.

    I realized that the author is smart, well-versed, knows how to use the Internet. But there are no conclusions on the Internet, and therefore there are no conclusions in the article itself.

      We need the God of War - Artillery. Any ... mortars, howitzers, self-propelled guns, self-propelled guns, and many ... like the DPRK does ... that can be buried in the ground in just a few minutes, the entire unit of the South Korean armed forces located at the 38th parallel, and not only them. It’s not bad to start communication with the Chinese military-industrial complex with deliveries of PLZ-05 and PLZ-07 self-propelled guns. The self-propelled guns are cheap and good ... better than the D-30 ... it’s time for us to switch from towing to self-propelled artillery.

    Well, of course, it was in Karabakh, but what if Russia would have defended it, but who would doubt it. Last year there were harsh clashes not in Karabakh, but on the border of Armenia itself, and where Russia was with CSTO?

    1) So I still didn’t hear - at least Armenia itself somehow intervened in the conflict in Karabakh? Armenia, as a state, and not the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, which a) is not even recognized as a smyma by Armenia b) besides Karabakh itself, has occupied a couple of Azerbaijani regions and, frankly, is it an occupier in these territories anyway?
    2) If even Armenia does not want to officially get down to the conflict in Karabakh - then why should Russia intervene? What a strange approach - let Russia fight for you, and you Armenia will look from the side, and after that it will look - will it agree to favorably be friends with Russia or will it even think?
    3) There were regular shelling on the border of Armenia and Azerbaijan, and again, frankly, from both sides. What official military actions did Armenia take that would allow Russia to intervene at the military level? Armenia worked through diplomatic channels, resolving the conflict - Russia did the same. Or, again, the same question - Russia must fight for you, but you yourself stand by aside?

    There’s no need to fight for us. Just don’t sell modern weapons to Azerbaijan because Armenians will be killed from it. It’s like your allies. That's all. There are no and no other complaints against Russia. And Azerbaijan can buy up all the weapons in the world - this will not help solve many years the conflict will only create the illusion of superiority and the temptation of a military solution. The Armenians will never live with the Azerbaijanis in one state. And they will not leave their land. Are the Azerbaijanis ready to conduct ethnic cleansing?
